If young children give mom or grandma a craft gift for Mother’s Day, Baker Ross has plenty of ceramics to decorate, like paint and color pots and mugs that will quickly become favorites. .
It helps that they are homemade and have practical use.
Or you can introduce your mom to something totally different – and eco-friendly: the Japanese art of kintsugi repair. The next time your child breaks a dish, that’s okay – mom can just use her new kit to paint over the broken pottery with gold, saving another item from the landfill and giving it new life, rather beautiful.
